It seems we both had the same idea!
The map on that page ties in almost exactly with an area of the same shape and size in Belle Vue, Manchester.
The Wiki map, for some reason, has been inverted but once rotated back again, the roads - Hyde Road and Kirkmanshulme Lane - fit exactly with the present day roads of the same name.
The zoo, of course, is now all gone replaced by a cinema complex and car parks. What else?!
Anyway, thanks for your interest and help.
Unfortunately, I don't remember anything about our visit. It would have been around 60 years ago, of course. I imagine my mother would have taken us on the train from Bradford, and I see that there is a rail link near to the zoo site even today.
